Two boys rescued from frozen creek in Pasadena

Rescue crews rescued two boys stuck on ice in open water in Pasadena, the Anne Arundel County fire department said Sunday afternoon.

The boys had been trapped on a Magothy River tributary in the 1100 block of Jeronco Way, said Lt. Jack Beall, a spokesman for the department. Rescue crews dispatched just after 2:30 p.m. were able to get life preservers to the pair, then bring them to shore at about 3:15 p.m. using an inflatable boat.

The boys were sent to Baltimore Washington Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, Beall said.
